Roasted Squash with Better Than Everything Bagel Spice

Here's a simple but delicious squash recipe for the fall season. Sometimes we don't peel the squash, but you could if you don't like the slightly bitter taste from the peels. 

Serves 2-3

Ingredients

1 medium sized squash (about 2 lbs), acorn or butternut, peeled or not, sliced into 1/2" thick semicircles
1 onion, sliced
5 or 6 whole cloves of garlic, peeled
3 or 4 fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced (about 1/4 lbs) (optional)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Better Than Everything Bagel Spice 
zest of half a lemon, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Optional:

Chopped greens, such as kale or chard
Chopped green onion
Roasted nuts
Dried fruit, such as dates

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Add all the ingredients except lemon zest, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon Better than Everything Bagel Spice to a large mixing bowl and toss.

Spread out on baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Flip squash and stir other ingredients. Continue in oven for another 15-20 minutes until squash and onions are slightly golden. Put in a mixing bowl and toss with zest, juice and remaining teaspoon of Better than Everything Bagel Spice.

If you're not a mushroom fan, you could use chopped kale or chard instead. Green onions (chopped into long pieces) work well instead of or in addition to the shiitake for added umami. Possible add ons could include roasted chopped pistachios or almonds or even chopped dates or other dried fruit for a sweeter result.

I made this tonight and the flavors were delicious! I know how to cut an acorn squash but it seemed quite hard. My daughter likes delicata squash & cooks it with the skin on.
Thank you for the recipe!

Hi Sharon – we think this would be delicious on delicata squash and would love to hear how it turns out!

This is actually a question — would this work with delicate squash? I realize that cooking times would need to be adjusted, but I think the flavors would work.

This turned out great, it’s unlike most of the food we make and all the flavors really worked. I was worried there were too many onions but they really cook down and turn into delicious golden to light black carmelized yummerzes. I would strongly recommend using sweet yellow onions btw.

We also tossed in 2 sliced garlic chicken sausages at t-minus 7 minutes and that really worked well too. I might try adding brussels sprouts next time.
